Daily Shortcuts to Healthier Food

So you want to eat healthy? But eating healthy is expensive, time-consuming, and making those intricate and complex meals are difficult. Or is it? I would challenge you that it’s not.

Sure, making the kids mac and cheese is super quick and easy. Plus, it’s cheap! But do you really want to just be “filling your kids up”? Or do you want to actually nourish them? Same goes for you. Don’t you want to nourish your body so you’ve got more energy and feel better?

"Eating healthy should be a pleasurable experience … if you’re not experiencing it as so, you’re not likely to continue with it."

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive, time-consuming and difficult. Sure, it can be if you let it. But we eat super healthy as a family and I’m hopeless at cooking. My wife, Holly, is good at it. She enjoys whipping up delicious meals full of goodness and using all sorts of leftovers. Me however, not so much. I just want to grab...

How Much Should I Eat Before I Exercise?

Many of the healthy eating guidelines we grew up with are slowly going by the wayside. From eating three meals a day to consuming a diet of mostly grains, as new research arises, we are starting to eat differently. Although much of these recommendations still persist, many people are experiencing greater health from turning their back on these guidelines.

"When you eat nutritious foods, you don’t need to eat as much, or as often."

7 Ingredients That Will Change Your Life

Quit sugar! Start fasting! Eat less carbs! What the #### are we supposed to do?! The message has become completely convoluted. I was talking to someone recently about how confusing the message has become that many people simply don’t know what to do. People get caught up in all these “tactics”, like the ones listed above, that they’ve forgotten the basics.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know I recently received a copy of Luke Hines’ new book, Smart Carbs. I really like the book for the ingredients he uses, and the simple way he explains the science behind those ingredients and how they influence the body.

"The reason some ingredients are better for you than others is due to their chemical make-up and the way the body breaks them down and uses them."

If you want to lose weight, the simple answer is to consume less calories than you’re expending, and increase your level of physical activity to expend more calories....

The Best Breakfasts for Weight Loss

“Win the morning, seize the day” as the old saying goes. Starting your day well helps you to have a great day. And with food playing such a pivotal role in your energy and how you feel, your first meal of the day can set your day up for success, or plunge you into a downward spiral.

For the last 12 months, I haven’t been eating breakfast. I know. Sounds crazy, right?! Here’s an article about the best breakfasts and I’m starting by saying that I don’t eat breakfast. But breakfast is just that, “break—fast”, as in, breaking your fast. That doesn’t have to occur at 7am. It can happen at anytime. So regardless of what time you eat it, here are the best breakfasts for weight loss (and health in general).

Omelette

Eggs are a good source of protein, which is used to build body tissue. But protein also helps to fill you up, reducing the desire to eat more. The best thing about an omelette though...
